Howdy All;

Today my Mogurnda spawned for the 2nd time and this time I recovered the eggs.

The eggs are really cool the way they form, totally elliptical with a gelly mass at the base. When removed from the glass the hydrophobic hydrophilic interactions cause the egg masses to form balls.

No one can save them all but everyone can save at least one.

Were these recently for sale at Tropical Isle? I just picked up a pair of mystery gobies there. They looked kind of like that, but it's hard to say exactly because I gave them a sand bed and all I've seen is the top of their heads.

Okay wait, I just noticed that there are two kinds of Mogurndas, sands and sleepers. Mine look like the sands. Which do you have?

Yeah, those aren't the ones I have. Nice fish though!

If anyone can identify those fish, please contact me.

wellllllllllllllllllllllll,
Since Herpchat is down in Oklahoma, I strongly suspect the fish aren't from TI :)

What did they have them marked as ? Was Nick there ? He's usually pretty good at digging up ID's for fish he sells...

Can you start a new thread with some pics and we'll see what we can dig up ?

That would make sense :lol:

I haven't been able to get a hold of them, they were labeled "tiger goby" and there was half of a scientific name. I'll see if I can get pics, but I'd have to net them out. They may be leaving soon anyway as I'm selling a lot of what I have to concentrate on killies and dart frogs. Thanks for the help.

My Mogurndas are Purple Spotted Gudgeons;

Is this your tiger goby?

No, that's not quite it. Mine's freshwater and the bands are "dirtier", with more speckling.
